Never Enough Wool
May is here, and if the nursery rhyme is to be believed the flowers will be arriving shortly. We can entertain you while you are waiting …
We were invited to our warehouses for a sneak preview of what is new and exciting for the fall season, and are now meeting with sales representatives to place our orders. In the meantime, we also picked up a few things for immediate release.
First off, we were pleased to see a great
selection of the “60 Project” books from Cascade Yarns. We brought them back with us, and can report
that there are plenty of quick projects that are perfect for summer
Also from Cascade are the three new colours of Heritage Prints sock yarns.
Next, we stumbled across a new shipment of Alegria from Manos del Uruguay. Three of the most beautiful colourways followed us home as well. We don’t know about you, but we just love the colour sensibilities of the artists from this company, and are thrilled to be supporting this Fair Trade company. Did you know that inside the yarn labels the designer signs her work?
With the many, many projects that we have on needles we find that project bags are always a welcome sight. We found four types of bags and brought them back with us as well. These would be perfect for Mother’s Day gifts!
June brings us KNIT IN PUBLIC day. We will be celebrating on the afternoon of Sunday, June 12, with an afternoon potluck. We have a tentative location and will announce the details a bit closer to the date.
Knit in Public is also being celebrated with a Yarn Crawl! June 17 and 18 will see the streets and roads of Durham filled with knitters and crocheters as they traverse to each of the seven participating shops!
What’s on the needles these days? Barb continues working on her Sophie’s Universe as well as the new Debbie Bliss Advent blanket. Carol has finished her Whisper cardi and is now knitting happily on her fair isle socks and a shawl. What else will they finish this month?
Also, our very own “Noel Nag” reminds us that THAT holiday is only 7 months away …
Happy knitting and crocheting!
We attempt to keep our class fees at the lowest
possible rates. In
order to do so, we
ask that our students purchase their supplies here at the shop. In addition, we offer
class discounts to our
note that if you are
not able to finish your project in the allotted time, you are welcome
continue attending the lesson times until you are finished.
You must register for your class before class time. Class times are generally Tuesday afternoon from 1-3:00 pm and Tuesday evening 7-9:00 pm. Other times may be arranged to suit, but we will strive to hold classes primarily on Tuesdays. Drop-in knitters are always welcome, space allowing.
May – Socks from the toe up—If you have ever wondered how to make the most of that special skein of sock yarn, toe up socks are the way to go. We will be teaching this fabulous technique on a variety of sock weight yarns. Cost is $25 plus materials. Class starts May 3rd.
May—Debbie Bliss Christmas Blanket Knit-Along—Continuing with the theme of knit-alongs, we present this opportunity to complete a Christmas themed baby (or lap) blanket in time for gift giving this holiday season.
June—Reverber Scarf—This beauty introduces the Brioche knitting technique in the form of a stunning scarf that is sure to wow all you friends and relatives. Cost is $25 plus materials, and class begins June 7th.
July – No formal class is scheduled, but our Tuesday class night will continue. Everyone needs a night out, and what better place or time than at the wool shop?
Sit ‘n Stitch: Every Wednesday afternoon, from 1 until 3. Bring your latest project and join us for some stitching, questions answered, tea, and lots of laughter. Everyone is welcome!
Saturday Stitching: Every Saturday, from 2 until 4. What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than with friends both new and old, some handwork, and some tea?
Knitting Night: Every Thursday, from 7 until 9. Although it’s called Knitting Night, crocheters are encouraged and welcomed. There is plenty of friendship, tea, and yummy goodies for all.
